CVS Shopping Scenario 9/23

Share This Post :

Understanding Extra Care Bucks (ECB) * Shopping CVS
Current CVS Deals

If you’re new to CVS and don’t have any ECB from a previous shopping trip to use on the first transaction then the amount you pay will be your “seed money”. “Seed money” is the money you pay out of pocket to get your first Extra Care Bucks (ECB) to use on future purchases.

Last week we ended up with $1.00 in ECB (from Tide). I will be incorporating these into this week’s scenario.

We’ll be getting $33.44 worth of product for $6.89 (+ any applicable sales tax) out of pocket and have $$5.89 ECB to use next week. That’s a savings of almost 80%!

Save your $5.76 in ECB  as we will use it in next week’s scenario:)

Remember you don’t have to do both the transactions in one day or even at the same CVS.

Transaction #1:

Buy Venus Razor 1-ct. $6.89
ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip Wrap 1-ct. $3.79
